The Jackal of Nar is a fantasy book by John Marco. This is his first book, and so far I can tell he is a rookie. Much of his writing seems like it was written by a young adolescent. The story is okay. The book is about a newly raised king who is forced by the Emperor of Nar to invade a country whose leader can wield magic. The king, Richius, seems whiney and weak. He doesn’t really fit the profile of a king to me. The jury is still out on this book.
